EPDM Dispatch tool to batch rename multiple files

Hello all,

 

I have over 1000 files that I will need to rename in our EPDM vault. I have the following excel columns:

 

Original Name  New Name

ABCDEF1         GHIJK1

ABCDEF2         GHIJK2

ABCDEF3         GHIJK3

 

So if I could rename all the files in the "original name" column to the new associated names in the new column with dispatch that'd be great. 

 

The most success I have had is using this Setting Up An EPDM Dispatch Script to Rename SolidWorks Files which somewhat helps, but I have never used Dispatch and this will be my first attempt at trying something like this. I have also found a similar forum question which may be of assistance:

 

EPDM Action to rename multiple files 

 

Please assist me and thank you in advance!
